Major changes at intersection BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL sarah@newnan.com

Under the law, beer can be sold in refillable “growler” bottles, but the brewery isn’t set up to do the rinsing and sanitizing needed to fill growlers, said Evan Scanlan, one of the brewery’s three owners. The canning is done one beer at a time, one keg at a time, and it takes a while, but it was the best way to get into packaged beer, Scanlan said. “We try to get around 100 cans a week,” he said. Whether or not they will end up doing more cans will depend on how the first few weeks of direct sales go. “We’re going to take it easy and try to ease into it,” he said. When the expansion is

The Georgia Department of Transportation has made major changes to the operation of the multiple traffic lights at the intersection of Jefferson Street (Bullsboro), Jackson Street and Clark Street (Hwy. 16 West). The timing changes took place late this week and were in place Thursday evening, said Deputy Chief Mark Cooper of the Newnan Police Department. With the changes, the three lights are essentially functioning as one intersection. When traffic heading toward downtown on Jefferson, which turns into Bullsobor, has a green light, the light will also be green at Jackson and Clark, allowing motorists heading west toward Temple Avenue to go all the way through the intersection. Motorists heading north away from downtown on Jefferson Street will then get a green light, and the light at Jackson and Clark will stay green through that cycle, as well. Finally, traffic heading into downtown on Jackson Street will get a green light. It’s hoped that the new signal timing will greatly cut down on traffic bottlenecks and blocked intersections for motorists on both sides of Jefferson Street. It will mean a longer wait, however, for those on Jackson Street, who are used to getting more frequent green cycles. The entire light cycle is estimated to

It’s a momentous time for Georgia’s craft brewers – including Newnan’s Abide Brewing Company. As of Sept. 1, Georgia’s micro-brewers have been allowed to start selling beer directly to customers. Georgia’s new law regulating craft brewers was approved in the 2017 Georgia General Assembly session, and the direct sales provision took effect Sept. 1.

Now that the new law, passed as Senate Bill 85, is in effect, breweries around the state are poised to grow.

was recently typing a report for work in my patrol car. That’s where I type all of my reports. It’s also where I eat most of my meals while I’m on duty. Luckily for me, I have the nicest car on patrol, so it works out just fine. I parked off a busy roadway, still in plain sight for cars coming from either direction to see me. This way, I figured, I could type my report and make people slow down at the same time. I’ve seen three fatalities in a two-week stretch, all collisionrelated. That’s exactly three more than I wanted to see. It’s not something you ever get used to, those kind of scenes. So, if I can get a report done and slow cars down at the same time, it’s a win/win as far as I’m concerned. I hadn’t been sitting there very long when a full-sized

take two minutes and 35 seconds. Currently, the lights are set on timers though eventually they will be controlled by sensors in the pavement, according to Cooper. The hope is that no motorists will get stuck on the one-way portion of Clark Street between the lights, said Cooper. But that will depend on people not making illegal right turns on red. Cooper thinks some motorists might be tempted because no traffic would be moving on the opposite side of Jefferson Street. “We have to get people to understand that is OK, that is the way it is supposed to be,” he said.

Accordi ng to Hickman, the entire movie was filmed in Newnan. “Newnan is a really great location,” she said. “The hospital was the perfect fit for our movie setting. It was fantastic.” T he couple worked as a team handling all aspects of the film’s production, from writing the script, to working on the set, to creating the title sequence. In addition to producing the film, Hickman also designed the movie poster and website. The Hickmans have worked on other f ilm projects such as “The Wonderful Wadsworth,” a documentary about the Wadsworth Auditorium in downtown Newnan. They are currently working on two documentaries, one about rock bands in the 1990s and another about artists in Newnan. A special screening of “DeadThirsty” will be featured during the Women in Horror Film Festival later this month. The movie is expected to be released in 2018.

They may need directions or have a question they want answered. But this was not an ordinary spot for a car to pull up on me.

Big trees no longer protected on subdivision lots BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL sarah@newnan.com

Coweta County’s tree ordinance no longer protects large trees on residential lots when subdivisions are being developed. A change to the tree ordinance was recently approved – unanimously – by the Coweta County Board of Commissioners. The change only applies to residential subdivisions. Protections for “specimen trees” still exist in commercial developments. Under t he old ord inance, developers had to do a tree survey to identify and “geo-locate” all specimen trees on the property, and put together a tree protection plan. Two deciduous specimen trees had to be preserved on each residential lot, if possible. Each lot must have at least 12 inches of trees – either existing or newly planted – and under the old ordinance, at least half of those trees had to be in the front yard. T he new ord i n a nce includes the requirement for 12 “tree units” – that is, inches – of trees per lot, but all 12 inches must be in the front yard. The combi ned dia meter of trees must equal 12 inches or greater, and to count toward that total, any individual tree must be at least 3 inches in diameter at a prescribed height.

complete, Scanlan said they will probably look i n to m o bi le c a n n i n g operations that will come to the brewery and can a large amount of beer at one time. The brewery’s three

have the manpower “toWedojustthatdon’t … to really get into the details of preserving trees. ”

A s p e c i m e n t re e i s defined in Coweta’s ordinance as a hardwood tree that is at least 24 inches in diameter, an evergreen or softwood tree 30 inches or more in diameter, or a small tree, such as a dogwood, that is 8 or more inches in diameter. Coweta Development Review Coordinator Ben Sewell told the commissioners that the change wou ld “el i m i n ate t he requirement for the preservation of existing trees on home sites and move more toward providing enhanced landscaping.” The change will allow builders to save smaller trees, and use them to meet the 12-inch requirement, Sewell said. Builders are still welcome to save specimen trees but are no longer required to. Com missioner Bob Blackburn said he has heard a lot of comments a b o ut t h e ord i n a n c e , especially on large tracts where sur veyors were having to “go out a nd measure every big tree.” Blackburn said he was concerned that the requirement to identify every specimen tree could be cost-prohibitive and time-consuming, and that some developers would rather go ahead and clear cut, then replant. “At some poi nt t hey

needed some relief,” he said. T he t re e ord i n a nce went into effect in 2007, just before the housing market collapse. At one time, there were enhanced t ree-pla nt i ng requ i rements for areas that had been logged within a few yea rs of development. But that part of the ordinance was removed several years ago. Com m issioner Paul Poole said he’s seen development where crews go in with heavy equipment and take down every tree. He asked if there was anything to prevent that. “Not with this revision,” said Sewell. Though there are no re q u i re m e n t s to pre serve trees on the subdivision lots themselves, the county’s ordinance does require that at least 50 percent of the existing tree canopy be preserved in open space. Coweta’s sta nda rd conser vation subdiv ision ordi na nce allows 1-acre lots with 35 percent of the total area preserved as open space. Overall density ranges from 2 acres per house to 1.6 acres per house. In work i ng on t he

amendment, the planning department got a lot of input, Sewell said. A big part of the reason for the change is that Coweta County no longer has an arborist on staff. W hen constr uction takes place around trees, particularly large trees, there can be damage done that might not show up for a few years. “ I n some ca ses , t he trees die anyway,” Sewell said. “If we, who are not experts, work with saving the tree and it dies afterward, the homeowner is stuck with it.” Additionally, large trees may be nearing the end of their life cycles. On an old tree, there can be issues with disease and loss of strength in limbs. “That is where you need an arborist,” said Planning Director Robert Tolleson. Housing development is booming in Coweta, and the planning department is having to review between 500 and 600 lots per year, Tolleson said. “We just don’t have the manpower to do that … to really get into the details of preserving trees.” The requirement for landscaping in the front

owners, Scanlan, Philip Leonard, and Matthew K apusta , a re a l l st i l l working jobs and running the brewery on the side, but hopes are to hire someone to work in the tap room so the brewery can be open – and selling – more often. “It goes back to mak-

ing sure that we have the manpower and the beer,” Scanlan said. In recent weeks, they’ve had around 100 people a weekend come for the tours. The ability to do direct sales is welcome, but it is a big change. “ T he l a st t h i ng we

want to do is overextend ourselves or do something wrong,” Scanlan said. There are new taxes to pay and new forms to fill out. “It’s a big step for us as a company and breweries statewide,” he said. “We’re trying to start off small and get a feel for it.”

typically looking for bombs and drugs, but are on the hunt for harmful plant pests and keeping foreign animal disease from entering the country. The training center provides a state-of-the-art learning environment for training detector dogs and their handlers to help safeguard American agriculture by preventing pests and agricultural diseases from entering the United States through airports, international borders, postal facilities and cargo areas. The facility incorporates environmentally conscious features in accordance with the Leadership in Energy Environmental Design certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The Newnan facility sits on almost 18 acres – a far cry from their previous home in Orlando that sat on just 2.5 acres. The Orlando facility held a single training room, 35 kennels and kept just nine members on staff. Now, the facility hosts eight training rooms, 80 kennels and approximately 26 staff members. Trainer James Mason came along from Orlando. Prior to his role as a training specialist for the USDA, Mason worked as a trainer for bomb dogs at the Atlanta Police Department and also with the MARTA K-9 unit. Mason said beagles and beagle mixes are the agency’s preferred breed of dog at the airport because of their keen sense of smell, non-threatening size, high food drive and gentle disposition with the public. The ages of those in training range between 1 to 3 years old and are required to have a friendly personality. The USDA began its detector dog program, “Beagle Brigade,” at the Los Angeles International Airport back in 1984 where a single beagle was trained to sniff out plants and animal products in luggage and carry-on items arriving on international flights. By 1990, there were three locations set up for training in New York City, Miami and Livermore, Calif. In 1997, the training was consolidated to a single facility in Orlando before moving to Newnan 12 years later. “The majority of our dogs actually come from rescue shelters or from families willing to donate them,” Mason said. “Once we get them, they have to sit in quarantine for medical and temperament. After 14 days, they come to main kennel where they begin their training.” Trainers like Mason judge a prospect’s reaction to public places and crowds of people. The dogs are then evaluated by a veterinarian where they are tested for heartworms and undergo blood work. X-rays of the hips and spine are rated. All dogs are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. The beagles and beagle mixes are trained to work in airports, while Labs and Lab mixes go to work on borders, in cargo warehouses and in postal facilities. Occasionally, Jack Russell terriers are recruited to work in Guam finding brown tree snakes. “They never actually see the snakes,” Mason said. “We train them exclusively on smell.” In 2000, USDA started using larger dogs outside the passenger environment by employing Labs. This launched the “Border Brigade” on the Mexican and Canadian borders, and “Cargo Brigade” in the Customs and Border Protection’s cargo inspection facilities at airports and seaports. Depending on the working environment, the dogs are trained to give a response by pawing to indicate the presence of an agricultural product. Regardless of the behavioral response, treats and positive praise from their handler is the reward that increases their proficiency, Mason said. The beagles are initially trained to seek out five core odors – apple, citrus, mango, beef and pork. Later, their detection skills may be modified depending on their home port. Non-target food items such as chocolate and cheese are placed in luggage to help trainers keep beagles from responding to their favorite treats. Inside the training facility, a massive amount of luggage is utilized to help simulate the environment of an airport, including a conveyor belt. The majority of donated luggage comes from Goodwill or The Salvation Army along with a large amount of clothing. Several of the dogs currently in training are heading back to the United States/Mexico border where they’ll be put into action. However, many of the center’s graduates have gone down to Florida to help eradicate the growing population of the giant African land snail, which is considered to be one of the most destructive snails in the world. It’s known to consume at least 500 different types of plants and can pose serious health risks to humans, according to USDA. In 2015, Florida was awarded more than $7 million in a federal grant to help eradicate the threat, including the use of detector dogs that are specialized to find the snails. USDA dogs have also been trained to find Asian longhorn beetles, Mediterranean fruit fly larvae and even worked in the Chesapeake Bay wetlands helping to eradicate nutria, an invasive semi-aquatic rodent, from the Delmarva Peninsula. Mason said there will always be new challenges for the dogs that come through the facility, but believes they’re always ready to rise to the challenge. “Dogs like these, they just love to work,” he said. “It makes them happy.” And while the center is always on the lookout for new candidates, they occasionally offer beagles, beagle mixes and some large breed dogs for adoption. These are dogs that have not met their training requirements but would make wonderful pets. Mason urges anyone interested in donating or adopting to contact them at 770-254-2523. **** Clay Neely: clay@newnan.com, @clayneely

The political defiance that made Arpaio popular and seemingly untouchable as metro Phoenix's sheriff of 24 years played a role in his being found guilty in court in Phoenix, according to The Associated Press. He was convicted of a crime for ignoring a U.S. court order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. TV interviews and news releases that the media-savvy lawman used over the years to promote his immigration crackdowns came back to bite him, the AP reported. The judge who found him guilty of the misdemeanor cited comments Arpaio made about keeping up the patrols, even though he knew he was not allowed. Arpaio, 84, is set to be sentenced Oct. 5 and could face up to six months in jail. Attorneys who have followed the case told the AP they doubt someone his age would be incarcerated. In September 2013, Jordan was suspended for a week without pay after his visit with Arpaio. Then-City Manager Johnny Williams suspended Jordan saying the police chief violated a policy requiring them “to inform me of anything that is not routine in nature.” At the time, Williams stated, "A trip to Arizona and an article in the paper that was not discussed with me or the police committee is not routine." "If I have to fly down to Georgia to defend him, I'll do it," Arpaio said in a 2013 interview. "That is how much I support him."

Coweta County’s News Source, Published 4 Days a Week 16 Jefferson Street • Newnan, GA 30263 • times-herald.com while and started looking into it,” Yeager said. When Orchard Hills closed their doors, that was the sign we needed to try a new idea. I like playing golf and shooting and think a lot of people do, too.” Project SAFE is a program taught in all 21 elementary schools of Coweta County. The 12-week program covers topics like handling stress and disagreements without violence, self-esteem, bullying, internet safety and staying in school, as well as avoiding drugs. The program is taught to all fifth-graders one day per week for 12 weeks, and on the side, courses are also taught to younger elementary school students. Using their own bank account, separate from the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, Project SAFE is accountable for its own resources and provides T-shirts and certificates of completion to all of the program’s graduates, 1,800 to 2,000 students each year. “The budget pays for the salaries of our guys, but everything else we do in the classrooms relies on contributions and fundraising,” Yeager said. “Blalock Lakes has been tremendous, and we’re looking forward to teaming up with them along with our longtime sponsors like Redneck Gourmet, Buffalo Rock and Kimbles Commissary.” The cost of the tournament is $80 per person or $320 per team. Sponsorship of a station is $100. Food, drinks and snacks will be provided for individuals and teams before, during and after the tournament. Participants must provide their own shotgun, preferably a 12 or 20 gauge, but shot shells will be included. “We wanted to make it affordable to anyone, especially someone who might not normally participate in something like this,” Yeager said. “It’s a tremendous value. We provide food, 50 rounds of shells – it’s a bargain, especially at one of the premier courses in the region." The deadline for team entry and payment is Sept. 22. All questions and registration may be directed to Capt. Stephen Crook at the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office at 770-253-1502. **** Clay Neely: clay@newnan.com, @clayneely
